Welcome to Forest Friends

Nature Preschool for North Idaho

Our Mission

Forest Friends School serves kids ages 4-6 in the Coeur d'Alene,  Idaho area. We are located just 10 minutes South of downtown CDA on 5 beautiful acres of forest & field at a private home. Our classes are capped at 6, giving your child an individualized, nurturing approach to early learning.

We believe in using the tools of nature and nurture to help children at this precious, foundational age grow.

We are currently full with a full waitlist for Fall 2022.
